Presentation Wat Sa Long Ruea

Thai name : วัดสระลงเรือ
My opinion:
This temple about fifty kilometers from Kanchanaburi is interesting because, as the name suggests, it has the shape of a boat placed on a pond. The golden bow of this Swan Boat which is reminiscent of the most prestigious of the Royal b=Barges is particularly photogenic. To go aboard, there are 2 entrances, the most impressive one is guarded by Phu Rahu, demon of moon and sun eclipses with a black body and a large face that swallows the moon. This is followed by a long corridor and on the upper bridge there is a sanctuary with a venerated Buddha image (Luangpho Yai Ong Dam) and celestial representations. You will also find the large statue of a monk and a more classic ordination hall.

The story of the temple tells that a very religious man born in the area but working elsewhere came to pray Luangpho Yai Ong Dam image and his requests were granted. To show his gratitude, he decided to rebuild Wat Sa Long Ruea and make it an important heritage site in the province of Kanchanaburi.

How to get to Wat Sa Long Ruea ?

I don't know if there are local buses to come to Wat Sa Long Ruea. It is located by the 3443. Perhaps a bus can drop you there from Kanchanaburi. To see on the spot but the best to come remains to be conveyed. Especially since there are other interesting temples within a radius of 15-20 kilometers, some of which are in the neighboring province of Suphanburi.
